UK firm to plan Moher future

Clare County Council has  confirmed that Leicester-based Haley Sharpe Design Ltd has been awarded the €398,547 Cliffs of Moher Strategy 2040 contract.moher1119
The council is commissioning the work after admitting that the existing visitor facilities at the Cliffs of Moher “strains to be fit for purpose” and are ‘now rather overwhelmed’ during peak times with visitor numbers projected to increase to almost two million by 2025.
It is now 12 years since the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience (COMVE) was opened at a cost of €30 million.
 However, in the tender documentation the council makes the case for additional visitor infrastructure stating that existing systems at the CoMVE are ‘sub-standard’ and that the attraction “is a victim of its own success”.


The council noted that the infrastructure and arrival facilities at the site were originally designed and constructed for a visitor population of 400,000, which now numbers 1.5 million and which is projected to rise to almost 2 million by 2025.
